ROMARIC.DELAHAIE@GMAIL.COM Engineer, Product Designer, Entrepreneur My vision of high-end value products Hi, I am Romaric and this Portfolio showcases 3 years of both school and To me, one of the keys to a cleaner future is for users to have fewer +44 7 828 560 369 personals projects. My Mechanical Engineering Degree combined with objects that do more. It is part of my engineering and designer role to my Master’s degree in Industrial Design allows me to think products as take part in this evolution, by developing clever and appealing products a whole from A to Z. Every single product you will see were thought, that combined several features together. designed and engineered by myself. MY RESUME 2 JUMBLE. A modern shopping trolley bag The goal was to imagine a shopping trolley to fit young adults needs. I wanted a cute robot type product that could follow you everywhere and extend itself when needed. 2M SOLO 2018 SKETCH DESIGN ENGINEERING CAD RENDERING PROTOTYPING 3 Your daily bag Unfold it to shop Because young active people do small Jumble adapts itself to your needs. food shopping at random times, they When you need more room, unfold the always need a shopping bag with them. fabric sides and the telescopic handle, it’s ready to use! Ride with it Combination with the bike was key to build a clever city device. The dock was fully designed and engineered as well. 4 Carefully engineered I worked on both CAD and paper sketches to achieve various technical challenges. Jumble has been carefully crafted to be appealing and manufacturable. 5 1 A 1:3 scale mock-up I wanted the prototype to be highly loyal 3 Semi-functional prototype I used a simple telescopic plastic tube to the shapes of the real product. To do so, mechanism to enable one door to open as I decided to use a sandwich approach, by the final product would do. combining 12 medium boards designed in CAD beforehand. 2 Surface quality work I used numerous amount of finishing 4 A faithful 1:3 size mock-up The final mock-up validated my product coating to finalized the exterior aspect of assumptions in terms of shape and volume. the product. Only then, I covered it with several layers of paint. Copyright Alexandre Tarall 2019 SEE MORE ON MY WEBSITE 6 B-EVE. From an anti-aggression bracelet 1ST PRICE In 2018 I started a project with one simple goal: find an ingenious way of answering women street aggressions. Our answer was a revolutionary bracelet that won 3 awards including the Dyson Award in 2019. To a french start-up After receiving great feedback from public and victims of aggressions, and followed by several industrial actors willing to help me, I decided to start my own start-up to launch this product. 8 months later, after an incredible adventure, I am now moving forward. 2 YEARS DUO 2020 SKETCH DESIGN ENGINEERING CAD RENDERING PROTOTYPING UX | UI DESIGN BRAND IMAGE 7 3 Shake it to activate it Shout EVE to alert Once on your wrist, the device detects The main activation trigger is your voice. it allowing you to turn it on by shaking Shout EVE to launch a 110dB alarm, it 3 times. record evidence and alert your relatives via a call and GPS location sharing. The original design This is the concept that won the Dyson Award. When I created the brand b-eve, I redesigned it and evolved some features to fit the target better. 8 A user-centred design The design and ideation process was done in close collaboration with victims of aggressions, women and police forces. It allowed us to think differently and come up with radical efficient ideas. 9 Safe travel b-eve app When re-imagining the b-eve product, I developed a b-eve companion App. A social co-walking service and b-wear bracelet support were at the centre of it. b-eve website As a fresh start-up, building a website to showcase the b-eve vision and products was key to success. 10 1 A functional mock-up Together with my partner, we built a 3 1.3 million views in 1 week With more than 1 million views of a functional prototype of the first EVE Facebook interview, several media Dyson award-winning product.

Solar garden torches Fill the water tank and light up your device by turning the ring. The solar panel on the top will automatically recharge the battery. 13 Engineering exploration Finding simple mechanism within the body ratio and water constraints was a great challenge. I tried to find the most simple solution with fewer parts possible for each product. The water bottle 360˚ top mechanism is made of only 3 parts. SEE MORE ON MY WEBSITE 14 KIWI.

After days of exploration, I came back to it because of its simplicity & stability. I created the pliers design around iconic animals shapes to get new fresh design ideas. 17 1 A 3D printed coil base I used the Color Jet Printer technology 3 A folded cardboard pack I designed the pack to protect the to print those bottom parts without product and simultaneously showcase all structure. the different features it has to offer to the client. 2 A 1:1 scale mock-up The main Kiwi body was built out of a 4 Great feedback Designers and users feedbacks were wood cylinder, combined with various positive about this concept.
